Funny, that's what Wizard says too. And others I've heard. I use vista and have no problems with DX, but I do use the pro version.
Here is an example: As you know i make DX themes.
I have not made one or have been using DX for a while. maybe 2 months.
I go to load up one of my themes and My date text or digital clock do not work. I go in dx folder and those plug-ins are gone.
I made them with those plug-ins . where did they go. I have not updated or deleted them. they are just gone.
Vista and Dx also still don't let the system tray or task bar work on vista.
Jim you also might have a good rig to work on. Mine is nothing but trouble. I am sending it back to HP for the third time to fix bios, fan and motherboard and new battery. second battery thats gone bad in less than a year.
So i am sure each computer with vista work differently with Dx.
